This thread is about an incomplete list of prominent and famous (or infamous) people who are Muslims - followers of Islam. This page is a list of people identified as Muslims, particularly by themselves. This page does not differentiate between Sunni Muslims, Shia Muslims, or any other subcategory. It also does not take into account whether those listed acknowledge their Muslim identity or origins. This list takes a wide definition of a Muslim by including most individuals who might be in some way identified as Muslim, but acknowledges that more restrictive definitions may be applied by the reader. For information on Islam and Muslims in various parts of the world, please see Islam by country

I didn't know Wesley Snipes left Islam.

I checked Salma Hayek again and it seems the confusion comes from the fact that she is half Arab (Lebanese) and so people probably assume that makes her Muslim.

Is that video true? 25??

Wallahi, there are days, most days, where it feels like its certain that my mum is going to die as a non Muslim, its so wierd, I worry so much like walking down the street and just think oh man what if she'd dead now.

SubhanAllah.

When I hear stories like that, of people having their family accept islam after years, it does give me so hope insha'Allah.

Cassius Clay, slave name...Why not call the Muslim by the Muslim name? ie Muhammad Ali....
